Dinohra M., M.D
I was introduced to Dahn Yoga by accident. As a psychiatrist, I quickly recognized that this was not just an exercise program. It is a process that benefits your entire being.
Through the Dahn Yoga practice, you can discover a state of harmony with others in an environment that supports acceptance, tolerance and patience. You will uncover your strengths as well as your weakness in your personal search for the truth. You will begin to take responsibility for your actions with a willingness and desire to change habits that are not useful.
This form of exercise is gradual and gentle. Everyone in the program moves along with his/her pace and level of comfort. Among the practitioners, there is no competition or rivalry; just a sense of unity and heartfelt responses.
This is an enriching experience, irrespective of age, physical ability or meditation experience. The results of this practice are a sense of peace and harmony. As you proceed through the exercises, the limits of your abilities will be expanded beyond your present imagination.
The practitioners turn to healthier and more positive ways to interact with their family, friends and business associates. They find that their relationships become more stable and mature. As they begin to feel the Ki-energy flow in their bodies, they learn how to respect their own bodies. As their feeling of separateness begin to dissipate within the Dahn Yoga exercise group, they discover that the energies in the practice hall become one, filling the room with happiness, joy and peace. Their fears and apprehensions disappear in an atmosphere of love and acceptance.
At this point, the practitioners understand what it is like to have a desire to achieve in their lives and their relationships. Their lives begin to change. They take on a holistic approach to life, with a sense of well-being, happiness, joy and harmony.
The first step in beginning Dahn Yoga and Brain Education is to have a check-up of your present energy condition. During this Ki-energy check-up a certified instructor will assess your body balance, flexibility, breathing, and energy circulation.
